The smoking light is unlit

Posted By on Fri, Jul 30, 2010 at 1:42 PM

I'd forgotten this. An all-campus ban on smoking on all state university campuses takes effect Sunday.

Old fogey sidetrip. In my college days, cigarettes were 23 cents a pack in Virginia (free book of matches included). We smoked them — Luckies and Marlboros — in the classroom. In the dining hall. At football games. In the student coffeeshop. All night at the card table. In dorm rooms. In taverns. In restaurants. I think even in the library, though I rarely darkened those doors.

Glad that's over.
